Particle physics could be rewritten after shock W boson measurement

“The standard model of particle physics has stood the test of time for decades, but now a new measurement of a particle called the W boson could indicate a chink in its armour.”


The scientists took 10 years to do the analysis as it was so complex!

“The analysis was so complex that the result took more than a decade to produce, after the Tevatron shut down in 2011, but its potential implications are huge.”
